    Here in the UK, the generic term for carbonated beverage = "fizzy drink". I thought you guys spoke English? ;)

    When I went into the military I met a guy from up north and he called it pop and I had no idea what he was talking about. We also call all gas stations Jiffy's for whatever reason.

    I can't believe so many people call it pop. That's so weird! Ridiculous yankees.

    Soadee Pop, probably started saying it that way when I had kids, and it stuck.

    What about Fizz or Juice? Used in Scotland along with Pop (rarely?) and cold drink or fizzy drink

    I'm not aware of Cola, Coke, Soda or Soda-pop being used generically in Scotland and Scotland was once - and will undoubtedly be again - the centre of world Presbyterianism.

    John Knox and Samuel Rutherford would have called their's Fizz or Juice. The Reformation in Scotland has lost its fizz somewhat due to "Enlightenment" higher criticism and general godlessness.

    We also have Soda Water, and Cream Soda is a fizzy drink with a vanilla flavour.

    I had a pastor from Georgia, and he taught his kids to say, "Co-cola" in reference to any flavor of pop.

    I'm from Ohio so it's "pop." My wife says "soda." Even though she's originally from Ohio, she grew up in Florida and was pressured to change.

    Have any Aussie answered?
    Most of us call these carbonated drinks, soft drink. Then when ordering you buy Coke, Sprite, Ginger Ale etc. Soda is sometimes used by young folk which I think is the result of watching US TV shows! Your Pop here could be your Grandad!
    (Creaming Soda is a dark pink here.):cheers:
